Biography :

Dr. Hogsette was hired in a Post-Doctoral position in January, 1980, to fill a vacant field entomologist position and perform research on Higher Diptera in agricultural settings. After competing successfully for a permanent position, he was hired as a Research Entomologist in August, 1980. In October, 1980, he was sent to Panama City, Florida, to manage the stable fly pilot project. In 1986, he returned to Gainesville and since then has concentrated on various aspects of biology, ecology and control of house flies and stable flies in agricultural and urban settings. The incumbent was appointed Lead Scientist in Mosquito and Fly Research Unit in 2009. He had worked in the field of veterinary and medical entomology for 35 years. His specialty has been the biology, ecology and management of nuisance higher Diptera, particularly house flies and stable flies, in agricultural and urban settings. He has conducted numerous cooperative studies with USDA and university scientists, both nationally and internationally, and has worked extensively with industry and with the military. He has been a frequent consultant throughout the world on research projects involving nuisance flies and has been invited on numerous occasions to write review papers and present educational lectures on filth flies. With his 1985 paper on stable fly long-range dispersal, he opened the door to the continuing nation-wide research and debate on this topic. His work with light traps for house flies has changed the way that the pest control industry utilizes traps in restaurants and other buildings. Dr. Hogsette has worked in many aspects of management of nuisance flies, including trapping, development of and management with pesticides and Insect Growth Regulators, sanitation, biological control, attractants and repellents. He is the author or co-author of more than 200 refereed publications, review articles, book chapters and extension articles, with 3 patents and numerous publications in the popular press.

Biography :

Mike is a highly skilled chemical ecologist, leading hypothesis-driven chemical ecology research that underpins the development of novel pest management strategies. He has more than 150 publications and patents. Mike has extensive expertise in the isolation, analysis and characterisation of small lipophilic molecules (SLMs) of biological origin acting either as external chemical signals (semiochemicals) for invertebrate arthropod pests and disease vectors (insects, ticks and mites) or as biomarkers of infectious disease status. He leads research in four areas: 1) the discovery and quantification of SLMs found in plants, farmed livestock and humans that affect pest behaviour; 2) elucidating the modification of plant secondary metabolite signals upon biotic stress and elicitor treatment, and their role in mediating above ground and below ground plant/pest interactions and plant/plant communication; 3) developing new strategies for overcoming resistance to semiochemicals, using complementary approaches to understand the evolutionary process by which insect resistance to semiochemicals develops and how novel semiochemicals can be identified on a rational basis; and 4) the development of new measures for the control of farmed livestock/human disease vectors and nuisance pests, based on an understanding of the role of semiochemicals in determining non-host avoidance and the genetics responsible for non-host semiochemical production in vertebrate hosts.

Professor , Parasitology
Universidad Central de Venezuela , Venezuela
Biography :

Bachelor in Bioanalysis, degree obtained at the University of the Andes of Venezuela (1991), with doctorate in Sciences, Mention Immunology (2014), obtained at the Venezuelan Institute of Scientific Research (IVIC). Granted by the Gran Mariscal de Ayacucho Foundation to carry out bachelor studies and by the National Fund for Science, Technology and Innovation (FONACIT), for doctorate studies. Professor of the Cathera of Parasitology of the School of Bioanalysis of the Central University of Venezuela (UCV) since 2005, currently as assistant professor of exclusive dedication, unpaid leave. As a professor at the UCV, I have taught courses in Parasitology I (Intestinal Parasitosis), Parasitology II (Tissue Parasitosis) for the pre-degree of the Bioanalysis career, in addition to participating as a teacher in the Protozoology Unit of the National Prostgraded Parasitology The UCV. My research lines have been related to cellular immunology, parasitology and Molecular Biology. In cellular immunology, my first publications were related to the acute phase response (TNF-alpha, pre-albumin or IL-6) in eutrophic and undernourished mice and children in presence or absence of infection. These publications originated while working as a Research Associate (PAI) at IVIC (1992-1996). In parasitology, the publications have been aimed at the study of the morphology, diagnosis and response to the treatment of Dientamoeba fragilis, Cyclospora cayetanensis, Blastocystis spp, Acanthamoeba spp and Naegleria fowlery. These publications have originated from the continuous work of the Laboratory of Amibiasis, which is attached to the Chair of Parasitology of the School of Bioanalysis of the UCV. The Laboratory of Amibiasis is a Reference for the diagnosis of pathologies produced by Amibas of free life, by cultivation, in Venezuela. With the incorporation of Molecular Biology could be characterized by PCR-RFLP, Acanthamoebas spp responsible for ocular infections or Amebian Granulomatous Encephalitis (EGA). Results that have already been published. My doctoral thesis was related to the immune response of children and adults with reduced episodes of malaria by Plasmodium vivax, still in the process of publication, some extracts have been taken to National (Vzla) and International Congresses. It was developed in the Laboratory of Immunoparasitology of the Center of Microbiology and Cell Biology of IVIC and was tutored by Dr. Hilda Pérez, expert in malaria. In order to test whether the immune response of children and adults to malaria differs, PBMC culture, lymphoproliferation, cytokine analysis in culture supernatant, plasma or its expression by RT-PCR and quantification of total immunoglobulins against Erythrocytes infected with P. vivax. Results have allowed us to shed light on how the immune system behaves differentially responds to infection caused by P. vivax in adults and children, with few malarious episodes During my work as a teacher, I have been tutor and co-tutor of students for the development of their Special Degree Jobs. Molecular Characterization of Acanthamoeba spp Isolated, which have received awards in the Congresses of Specialist Bioanalysts such as: Franca Billi Prize, at the XV Venezuelan Congress of Bioanalysis, May 2012, as best work in extensive and Honorary Mention at the XVIII Congress of the Latin American Federation of Parasitology, June, 2011. I have also been Tutor or Co-tutor of works related to the Characterization, Biological, Morphological and Molecular of Blastocystis spp and intestinal parasitosis of suburban areas as Part of the Community Service, mandatory requirement for students of the School of Bioanalysis.

Wenbin Tuo has expertise in protozoan and nematode parasite infectious diseases in livestock species. He has devoted his professional career to understanding host-parasite interactions and development of immunologic control measures for parasitic infections in large ruminants. Vaccine candidates identified by antigen-specific CD4 T cells and parasitic immune modulators that are able to cross-downregulate host protective immunity have been tested in numerous vaccine trials and some of the vaccines have been demonstrated to have significant protective efficacies. His ongoing research involves continued investigation of interplays between the parasites and hosts and identification and testing of protective candidate vaccines in ruminants.
